Share the LOCAL Love - Gift Card Program 2021

  • The program will last until all 200+ gift cards have been awarded! The gift card program will award up to 8 gift cards per week in varying amounts! This program will benefit both retailers and restauranteurs, inspiring the community to #shoplocal, #supportlocal and #sharethelocallove!
  • Local business owners are diligent in their utilization of the three W’s, so please be sure to wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash your hands to keep our community safe. Our local retailers and restaurants are dedicated to giving you the shopper the safest shopping experience. The Hillsborough/Orange County Chamber of Commerce is excited to host this program and needs your participation to make it happen.
  • To learn how you can win a gift card, see the flyer below! If you are a locally-owned business, feel free to print off the flyer and hang it up in your shop!
